West Aberdeenshire Young Farmers recently raised money and donated their funds to a number of causes.

Earlier this month the group met up with SANDS (stillbirth & neonatal death) charity representatives Claire, Fiona and Susan along with sandpiper trust representative Claire at a district stockjudging event to present them both with £300 each.

The funds were raised through a number of events held from fundraising discos to local show stands.

A further £400 was awarded to two of the district members Kimberly Webster and Marelle Marshall towards their Young farmers international trip to the Rural Youth European Rally 2015 in Austria.

West Aberdeenshire young farmers are made up of five clubs - Vale of Alford, Echt, Middeeside, Garioch and Inverurie.
